Stainless Steel Crowns Are Driven By Increasing Prevalence Of Dental Caries In Children

Stainless steel crowns are prefabricated full metal crowns that are used to restore heavily decayed, injured or diseased primary (baby) teeth in children. When a primary tooth is severely decayed or damaged, it is difficult to do a regular filling and stainless steel crowns provide a conservative treatment option to restore the tooth structure. Stainless steel crowns are superior to tooth colored composite or amalgam fillings as they fully encase the tooth, provide excellent aesthetic appeal, cover extensive areas of tooth structure loss and protect the restored tooth from future decay.

 The global Stainless Crowns Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.3 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 12% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the stainless crowns market is the increasing adoption of zirconia crowns. Zirconia crowns are gaining popularity over stainless steel crowns as they offer excellent aesthetic properties similar to natural tooth structure and are very durable. Zirconia crowns are made from zirconium dioxide, a highly biocompatible ceramic material. They provide good strength and resistance to wear and corrosion, and can withstand heavy biting forces well. The translucent property of zirconia crowns allows for a very realistic shine and appearance. The increasing aesthetics consciousness coupled with growing preference for tooth-colored restorations is contributing to the growing demand for zirconia crowns over traditional stainless steel crowns.
